"The recent experience with Dill was great - thorough, and the doctor (Dr. Robert Merkin) gave us everything we needed to provide the prescribed care at a reasonable cost and with good written instructions. A previous wellness exam and vaccinations with our other cat, Pika, earlier this year was overall decent/pretty good (especially considering it was my first experience with a vet at all, and my cat was in good health/not sick at the time). Pika’s exam with vaccinations was unexpectedly very quick, so much so that I’m unsure as to how thorough it was since again, this is my first vet experience since I had not previously had any pets that required vet care. I don’t recall which doctor examined Pika at the time, as I was not allowed into the clinic due to Covid, but I believe it may have been Dr. Max Merkin (but again, Pika’s experience was also positive overall. but I feel that Dill’s recent experience and care with Dr. Robert Merkin was very positive and thorough, despite still being unable to go into the clinic with my cat due to Covid, that I would prefer having Dr. Robert for my cats’ care in the future when needed)."

Never the less my cat Leila received excellent care and the doctor phone me to tell me what steps he had done and what I should do as a follow up. It was all very clear and very helpful. My cat Leila went in with difficulty breathing and coughing and sputtering and now since I brought her home she is much better and her breathing is normal and no more coughing if making strnage gagging sounds .. I am very happy with her treatment. "
